Are you getting enough traffic to your website?
If you are not getting enough traffic to your website it’s like having a store and no one comes in to look around and then buy something from you.
You need to let people know “why” they should go to your website (store).
what is in it for them? They are “the customer”.
Now, when you first start out online no one is really going to know who
you are and what you have to offer. That kind of notoriety comes with
time and exposure.
Using free methods of getting traffic to your site is great. Most of the social media sites, blogging, and video are a great way to get exposure, but that takes time and consistency.
You also want to be thinking about, can you scale this traffic?
With free traffic it is very time consuming and unless it goes viral, it is not scalable. You never really know if it will go viral until it happens!
Having traffic to your website that is scalable is imperative. If you have a sales funnel that is working well…
Why would you hold back on traffic?
So my recommendation is to have paid traffic along with your free traffic. That way you can become well known And continue to build and scale your business.
Some of the paid traffic methods that I use are:
* Pinterest Promoted Pins (point back to your blog article)
* Solo Ads – Yes, I love this method and use it daily! You get to write your own ad copy so there is more control for you. You find solo vendors based on a proven method (see Solo Ad Success Formula below)
* CPC – This is Cost Per Click. You just provide a link to your sales funnel… no ad copy. Best resource listed below.
* Facebook Ads – This is a great way to get in front of many people, but it will cost you. If you target your audience then it can really be effective.
All in all, I would say that you need to use a combination of free and paid right from the get go.
Yep! Suck it up and have yourself a marketing budget. This is Your business 🙂
Now with that said, I also highly recommend that you track your ads. I will have that conversation another day…
